ESF is a fast paced, 3rd person fighter based on the hit anime, Dragonball Z. Select your favorite character and fly, power up, transform, melee, and beam your enemies into pulp. Each character is given signature moves and abilities to compliment different style of play. Some are stronger in hand to hand combat, others are better with energy attacks. Play in three different game modes, deathmatch, team deathmatch, and capture the dragonballs. There is a learning curve so newbies beware. This is not your normal Half-life mod.

The image above shows a couple new features that the coders have been experimenting with.

For example, Rick has been working on an animal AI system that will allow mappers to add different types of creatures to maps. This system will allow for a variety of creatures that players will be able to interact with. Have you ever wanted to punch a dinosaur in the face? Me too...

Radial Blur
Raven has been experimenting with adding radial blur to ESF's visual FX set.

so what are the odds of this ever becoming independent?

(oops, meant to post this on the main wall, but I guess this works)

It's always going to be a half-life 1 mod. Would be nice for them to make an independent game after their done with esf, though

We did have talks about that. But anything we make will be original design. So that we wont have any copyrights to watch out for.

And they are unique. Unlike most DBZ games where you have 100 characters that are preety much exact copies of each other.

What is awesome is that you guys manage to push the engine so far beyond what it was made for.
